The Lemon Hart 151 is not "gasoline" like so many other overproof rums, but rather an earthy and old leather flavor premium overproof rum. Don't be fooled into thinking this is going to be a smooth, woody and complex experience, because it is not. This is a full blown 151 proof rum with a healthy burn in the back of the throat and an alcohol equivalent of 2 cocktail in one measure. This doesn't mean that it doesn't have a good flavor though, because it's the flavor that makes it work so well in so many cocktails. The reappearance of Lemon Hart151 is going to be a great help to the resurgance of the Tiki cocktails that is currently happening all over the world.
Lemon Hart 151 is still being produced along the Demerara River in Guyana, but now being bottled in Canada. This is a must addition to your rum cabinet if you are going to be following in the Tiki culture of cocktail mixing. Enjoy it either at home or stop by the Rum Bar Key West and let me mix you one of the Tiki Cocktails featuring Lemon Hart 151. ;o)
